AMERICAN BIG GUN PUTS GERMAN OUT "WITH THE AMKR1CAN ARMY ON THE SEDAN FRONT, Nov. 7. (By the Associated Press. I American and Ger man big caliber gunH recently had a duel on this sector and the Americans apparently came out on top. About the time the Americans' big guns began operations against the en emy communication lines, the Germans started shelling Verdun and the region north and northwest with a naval weapon of large caliber. The Americans immediately began cal culations to determine the position of the enemy gun and finally decided that thay had found Its location. Then the battle began. R continued day and night for several days. Suddenly one afternoon the German big gun ceased firing and nothing has been heard from it slnco. The American gunners do not claim a direct hit, but they do claim that the German battery was compelled to withdraw even If the heavy gun was not damaged. No Luck for Him SIX NEW HUN UNITS USED AGAINST YANKS WITH THE AMLRICW ARMY NORTHWEST OF VERDI N. Nov. (Hv the Associated Press.) Six Ger man divisions which had not been operating on this front prior to Fri day's advance have been identified. Three of them were thrown Into the battle against the American a few hours after the American offensive was resumed. These divisions were transferred to this front from the Ijton. Champagne and Woevre sectors. It Is not known how manv divisions were relieved by the six divisions, hut it is presumed that the enemy, after rushing them to this front, relieved several very tired divisions whose officers had refused them time to rest The rapidity with which the addi tional German divisions nppeured Kri rlay opposite the Americans was due to the plans of the German to have all available troops on hand In the event the Americans resumed the attack.
